Popular live streaming app Periscope for iOS users has been updated with a bunch of new features. The most recent 1.1.3 version now allows iPhone and iPad owners to mute notifications on a user-by-user basis. Thus, if you follow someone, you can now go to their Periscope account and turn off notifications for when they initiate a new broadcast. Here's how the full changelog looks like:
- Mute Users: We've added a notification setting for people you follow. When you mute someone, their broadcasts still appear in your feed, but you won't receive push notifications when they go live.
- Language Preferences: In your profile settings, you can now indicate your language preferences for Periscope. The languages you select will influence which broadcasts appear in your global list. By default, Periscope uses your device’s preferred languages.
- Broadcast stats: When viewing your past broadcasts, the viewer statistics are now visible.
- iOS 8 Handoff: You can start watching a broadcast on one device, and transition to watching it on another seamlessly. Simply ensure both are running iOS 8 or OS X, have Bluetooth turned on and are logged in to the same iCloud account.
